It is worth mentioning that on April 1, there was a conflict between the Tiger T64 and the Tiger T 104 in the Dhakda Forest area. Veterinarian Rajiv Garg told that this had wound up in the front leg of Tiger T-104. He told that the pus in the leg had fallen. In this way the tiger was unable to hunt and it was very weak. There were wounds on the tiger’s chest and elsewhere. The doctor also treated those wounds. During this time, CCF Manoj Parashar of Ranthambore Tiger Project, DFO Mukesh Saini and Tranquilizer Expert Rajveer singh were present.

Tiger tranquilized in the field
The team of forest department reached the Bhadlav village of Kundera range at around 5 in the evening. He undertook tranquilize to the tiger in a farm house near Bhadlav village. After this, veterinary doctor Rajiv Garg operated the tiger’s leg. After treatment, forest personnel left the tiger in the Dhaakda forest area.

Radio collar installed to the Tiger
For the monitoring of the tiger, the forest department team has once again placed radio collar in his neck after treatment. It is noteworthy that in the month of February, after the trekking of the tiger in the fields, the radio collar was installed by the Forest Department. However, in a few days the tiger’s radio collar fell into the forest.

Rajasthan set to get another tiger reserve at Kumbhalgarh
For the protection of tigers & their habitat at the increasingly threatened Aravalli Range, a 4th Tiger Reserve will be set up.


*This image is copyright of its original author

JAIPUR:After Sariska, Ranthambore & Mukundra Hills Tiger Reserves Rajasthan is now preparing to make another Tiger Reserve. A new road-map has been prepared in Rajasthan for accelerating & augmenting Tiger Conservation. It has been named "Vision 2030".

Under the Tiger conservation scheme, preparations are being made to set up tigers in Kumbhalgarh Wildlife Sanctuary between hills in Udaipur division. There are already diverse wildlife in the Kumbhalgarh area of about 1500 square kilometers. A workshop of leading wildlife experts and forest department officials was organized recently.
In this workshop, Kumbhalgarh was discussed about making the fourth Tiger Reserve and Tiger Conservation of the state. Along with this, a roadmap was also prepared for the protection & connection of Ranthambore, Sariska and Mukandra Hills Tiger Reserve.

As far as history of tigers in in the princely state of the Mewar goes, experts say that there are older confirmed records of Tiger's presence available here in Kodiyat in 1882. After this, Tiger's presence was recorded in Jaisamand in 1925, and in 1939, an English officer in Baghdada was published in a book about killing Tiger. After this, Tiger's presence was recorded in 1945 again in Jaisamand. Tiger's presence was recorded in 1952 Kwaa Kheda Chittor. Along with this, information about the death of Tiger in Panarwa in 1943-44 is in the record.
After independence, in 1952 a letter was written to a hunter of that time by a forest department to kill a man-eating Tiger. After this tigers were reported from time to time. In 1982, a tiger wandered and came to the settlement. Then most recently in 1993, a Tiger was found dead in Forest of Dungarpur. Also in the Ravali Targarh there's confirmed tiger residence in past, along with a record of killing Tiger in Vahein Ghana Rao Saadri.

Abhaya Shukla‎-Ranthambhore has been kind on me in terms of roadblocks. On my full day safari, we suddenly came across these beautiful siblings, who had filled their stomachs with a sambhar deer on the previous day, which was brought down by their mother, Krishna.
These siblings are now two years old and on the verge of their separation. Let’s see what nature unfolds in the next season

Sanjeev Siva‎-The Rise of Kings.

Ever since Kumbha (T-34) claimed the throne to the kingdom (range) of Kundal, there were hardly any conquests to the throne.

The scenario changed with Noor (T-39) making inroads into Kumbha's territory due to pressure from her own subadults, Noorie and Sultana, Kumbha wooed her and started to mate with her.

Aurangzeb (T-57), the mate of Noor, since Ustad's (T-24) deportation was lovelorn and entered Kumbha's territory to reclaim his queen.

With minor standoffs happening from time to time, however, a death-match was on the cards. On 20-June-2019, Aurangzeb injured Kumbha in a tiff, leaving him crippled. Kumbha had been mating with Noor for the past five days which meant that he hasn't hunted or fed during that time giving the sly Aurangzeb a great advantage who traced Kumbha, almost fatally wounding him.

With Kumbha not patrolling his territory in a while and crippled, his two sons have started patrolling Kumbha's territory like never before, one of them reaching Kumbha's favourite area/seat to the throne. It will be a while before we see a new king as we have two contenders who are still brothers in arms. But this is or is this the fall of a king and the rise of another king?

A year ago, Jai and Veeru were so impoverished and malnourished that they appeared to not make it beyond the cub stage. But both of them have emerged into healthy subadults and put on enough bulk that either of them an continue to be a great ruler, carrying the legacy of their father.

The Family.

Most tigers in Ranthambore are from the Machli line. Not much is known about tigers from other lineages, as these tigers were generally off the tourism limits.

One such line is the Gilai Sagar line, the cradle being Gilai Sagar female. Not much is known about her ancestry, and she was equally mysterious in her death too. She went missing in around 2010, but was dubiously declared dead in 2012 after a mutilated carcass of a tigress was found.

One of the most prolific litter of Gilai Sagar (T-27) female is Husn-ara (T-30) who gave birth to some famous tigers of Ranthambore such as Hamir (T-33) from her first litter and Fateh (T-42), Surzan (T-43), T-44 (who's relocated to Sariska) from her second litter all fathered by Jhumroo (T-20) and T-69, T-70, T-71 of which T-69, T-71 have reached Kailadevi WLS; T-69 subsequently returned to Ranthambore and has cubs fathered by Suraj (T-65, son of Krishna T-19 and Star T-28). The last litter was that of T-90 and Mirza (T-91); T-90 went missing after mating with T-75 for a brief period and T91 aka Mirza ruled the lake area fo a short while before being ousted by Chirico (T-86) and has been translocated to Mukundara Hills TR. The third and fourth litters were fathered by Bahadur (T-3).

T-27 has also given birth to Star male (T-28), one of the longest serving kings of Ranthambore and the lake area and T-29. T-29 went missing post a treatment for an injury.
Sanjeev Siva
T-27 then gave birth to two cubs, one of which is Indu aka T-31 (generally thought to be named after the late prime minister, smt. Indira Gandhi, but also could've been named after the area where she ruled - Indala plateau). Not much is known about the second cub.

The litters of Gilai Sagar were from X-male, the most dominant tiger of that time.

Indu (T-31) has given birth to Jr. Indu (T-60) and T-59. While T-59 currently lives in zone 9 with her mate Ladla (T-62, son of Ladli T-8 and Kumbha T-34) and has her own cubs, T-60 has given birth to two males and one female, fathered by Aurangzeb (T-57) earlier. One of the males (T-98) has naturally migrated to Mukundara Hills TR while the other (T-97) is still in Ranthambore tourism area; the female (T-99) has reached Zone 10.

Recently, Indu Jr. (T-60) has given birth to a new litter, of which only one cub seems to be surviving (fathered by T-57).

The family never received the attention that Machli's line got, probably exemplified by the fact that T-31 went missing around the same time T-17 aka Sundari went missing, but T-31's (Indu) case was never highlighted, despite being from one of the most prolific families of Ranthambore - having tigers migrated to and populated various parts of this isolated North-Western cluster (thus contributing to the genetic variation)

On Rajasthan State's southern border with Gujarat (where the tiger used to be (Jhala et al., page 10: https://web.archive.org/web/201306021246...df#page=22), especially when an individual crossed over from Madhya Pradesh in February this year before sadly dying: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/anima...-big-cats/https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city...aign=cppst), there is the sanctuary of Mount Abu, part of the Kathiawar-Gir dry deciduous forests' ecoregion (https://www.worldwildlife.org/ecoregions/im0206), where the tiger used to be before 1971: https://books.google.com/books?id=UDS5BA...&q&f=false
